Wildcard certificate-GPVPN certificates

Just imported new wildcard cert for firewall management GUI as the existing one is expiring soon. Certificate first imported to Panorama then pushed to Primary & Secondary firewalls (Active-Standby). Certificate is showing valid for Panorama but not for primary and secondary firewalls. Do we need to restart any services for the new certificate to take effect ?

You imported certificate or also updated SSL Profile under "Device > Certificate Management > SSL/TLS Service Profile"?

Yes, did. On browser, it says "not valid" but in cert details I can see the it is valid till Nov 2024. 




Certificate validity doesn't only look at the validity period. If you're using the same device cert on Panorama, Active and Standby, do they all have namespaces of the same length so the wildcard will match all of them?
